Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Lately, in the last 2 decades, it has been more common to have a same sex attraction in one's later life (after 40 years old) because same-sex relationships have been more accepting. Still the most common age range for same-sex attraction/relationships is in adolescence and young adult hood, but that does not mean later age same sex attraction/relationships are uncommon, just less frequent than those that occur in adolescence and young adulthood.
